Stuart Binny comes in
Narine comes back and gives away just 4 off the next over.
Four. Murdered down the ground, Stuart Binny nearly got killed. Change of bowler and Watson is back to his brutal ways.
1 run off a high full toss which gets called a no ball, its so high that even Watson can barely get to it
What happened there? Andre Russell ran in, then halted behind the umpire. Watson nearly pulled out of the shot and then Russell bowled. Watson is protesting with the umpire.
Now Watson gets a thick outside edge which lands in front of third man for a couple
11 runs off the over, Rajasthan 150/3 after 18 overs

That's the smartest piece of gamesmanship I've seen on the cricket field. (Andre Russell to Shane Watson) #KKRvsRR

OUT! Watson is out, the ball spun away from Watson, who went for the big shot over long on. He got a top edge, and long on took a superb catch on one leg
Narine is the man again.

RR 159/4 after 19 overs
Vinay Kumar will bowl the last over...this could be a treat for Rajasthan
Four runs off the first two balls
OUT! Steve Smith is out, he tries to go over the on side and fins mid wicket
OUT! What a catch on the bounday. That was almost like Chris Lynn's catch all over again, now Binny tries to go big and is caught superbly on the long on boundary
Vinay Kumar has been seriously lucky
SIX! Six to end the innings, the batsman swings Vinay hard over square leg, there was not a single yorker in that over and Kumar was going to pray the price at some point

They will be disappointed with this score after such a good start, but its still competitive

KKR 121/0 after 14 overs
OUT! Gambhir is out, he got a thick outside edge to the keeper
Chaos...Andre Russell is the new batsman. Watson yorks him, he manages to keep it out, then turns around and tries to stop the ball from going onto the stumps. Utthappa meanwhile is halfway down the pitch, or more. Andre finally sees him and sends him back, the bowler throws but misses, and they get a single anyway.
OUT! Utthappa is out now, he tried to go big over deep square leg but failed.
The game is suddenly in the balance

Southee around the wicket now, slower ball but its outside leg and called wide
Down the track comes SA Yadav, he swings and misses
Now he goes for a sweep and misses, there was an appeal for LBW but turned down
